SXU Hosts 2019 Via Summer Sessions for Incoming First-Year Students
Are you ready to start your journey at Saint Xavier University (SXU)? The first step to becoming an SXU first-year student is to fully immerse yourself in SXU culture through one of our "Via" sessions! Via is a mandatory summer orientation program offered for incoming SXU students.
What is Via? Via (formerly known as FOCUS) is an orientation program to provide you with essential resources and information to prepare first-year students to make the transition to college. At Via, attendees will receive information about their first-semester classes and meet lots of other people while having a great experience and spending the night on the SXU campus. Attendees will also be introduced to SXU's Catholic, Mercy heritage and to campus resources and support services -- people and areas that will enrich the Saint Xavier University experience.
Via is not just for students; parents and guardians are highly encouraged to participate as well. Parent Orientation, which takes place on Day 1 of each Via session, will familiarize parents and guardians with key aspects of academic and student life at Saint Xavier University. Highlights include information on academic expectations, student housing and financial aid. Participants also have the opportunity to meet with University leaders, ask questions of current students, faculty and staff, meet other parents and learn more about the University's rich Catholic, Mercy heritage and mission. Parent Orientation at Via 2 (June 23) and 4 (July 9) will include sessions in Spanish.
Via is immensely beneficial for all incoming first-year students. There is no better way to experience all that SXU has to offer than experiencing it firsthand.
